Fun Run

The Fun Run is a 1.5 mile non-competitive lap around historic Deerfield. The course loop starts at the Mary Hawks House on Broughams Pond Road. We hope you'll join the fun whether you walk, skip, push a stroller, or run! Everyone is invited!


This year, all students will receive free tickets at Spring Fling to enter into the raffles of their choice. Prizes will include: choose a day of free dress for students and teachers in your building (Keith, Drake, Kittredge), a basket or gift certificate from the school store, and more!

Spring Fling T-shirt Contest

Every year the Spring Fling t-shirts are designed by the students. Each student is encouraged to draw a picture of what they think should go on the Spring Fling t-shirts. A team of judges will decide which drawing will end up on the 2018 Spring Fling t-shirt.

Winners from the lower and upper schools will be announced at morning meeting on May 11, and all students will receive a t-shirt at that time.
